Schaar, a six-grader from Malibu, California has skated throughout his short life. He pulled off the maneuver consisting of three full rotations that has been unsuccessfully attempted even by professional skateboarders. He completed the difficult trick after trying five times at the Woodward West action sports camp in Tehachapi, California.

Schaar told ESPN.com: ‘It was the hardest trick I’ve ever done, but it was easier than I thought.’
